that often happens when a taper will only know the name of one or two of the songs so they put those in but the rest remain empty so they are just the filename. I agree, it would be best if people just left them all blank for the titles if they didn't know the titles. band / album though should always be filled out regardless

This Archive has been around much longer than I-Tunes or it's corporate competitors. The E-Tree file naming system gets the job done here.

So, rename and retrack your files in the order you like. The IPOD is a piece of junk, if it cannot track 101...., 102...., 103.... in order; no matter what the song names are after the numbers...

And yet the Archive's ability to stream has NOT been around longer, and that's what we're talking about here.

Yes, the iPod can track in numerical order - but again - that's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about the auto metadata that comes from Archive inconsistantly, which makes things go out of order. I now see (thank you Tyler) that the inconsistancy is due to uploader error and not the Archive's error.

You've passed up a wonderful opportunity to keep your mouth shut though.

We're talking about the auto metadata that comes from Archive inconsistantly,

We can only automate so much of it, it really is up to the uploaders to make sure the info gets filled out completely so the experience is easier for the fans. The import form asks uploaders to double check the information before they submit it, unfortunately not everyone does.
